Meet Captain Larry. He runs the Tampa Water Taxi. He likes good coffee, knows all about Elvis, and random facts about Tampa.

Tonight, I took my very first water taxi ride in Tampa. Slightly embarrassing since I’ve lived here all my life, but it had been on my Tampa to-do list for a while. The event was probably delayed so long because I’ve never had the best of luck on boats, usually falling ill within the first few minutes on the water. I totally lucked out with Captain Larry. First off, I felt zero sea-sickness. I didn’t even feel like I was on the water…smoothest ride ever! Second, he provided some super interesting tidbits of Tampa history. (I’m such a sucker for anything relating to my city.) Third, we discussed good, strong espresso. He even offered to bring some on our next trip with him. Ummm, heaven! Lastly, I saw my city from a completely different view that night and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. All around, a spectacular trip.
